World Poetry Day Festival, Library Art Gallery, 3PM March 21-22 (EN)

In honor of UNESCO’s World Poetry Day (21 March), Bilkent University is pleased to announce a two-day poetry festival featuring exciting presentations by the University’s leading poets and scholars. On Monday 21 March and Tuesday 22 March, experts from various fields and departments will show us how and why “poetry” can occur in places where we may least expect. These mini-talks are designed for all audiences and include discussion and active participation. Poetry from around the world, throughout time, and across different styles, forms, and contexts will be heard, seen, read, and performed. Please join us for this exciting event!
